The Short Sale Tsunami is Headed Our Way

Real Estate Agent with Portland Vancouver Homes

The wave has only just begun.  Option ARMs are still very toxic to the real estate market today.  Delinquencies are rising rapidly.  HOPE Now data from early January 2009 revealed that delinquencies rose to a new record, 4.9%.

Despite the efforts of servicers and institutions to modify loans, the modifications fall short.  None of the lenders out there are reducing the principal owed on the loans. Therefore, the houses that are worth way less than what is owed on them are headed for foreclosure or short sale. 

 There is a huge possibility that 2009 will be far worse than 2008. The distressed inventory is now priced at 20-30% below what today's comps are.  Creating a negative feedback loop.  Distressed inventory is causing home prices to fall like lead.

 "We're expecting a tsunami of short sales and foreclosures over the next several years... the loan modifications will fall short, unless there is something more dramatic done, like nationalizing the mortgage industry...

- Ivy Zelman, Zelman and Associates CEO and CNBC's David Faber
